What’s it like to interview a legend like Stanley Donen, director of such classics as “Singin’ in the Rain” (1952), “Royal Wedding” (1951), a musical in which he made it possible for Fred Astaire to dance on a ceiling, and the Paris-set Audrey Hepburn-Astaire vehicle “Funny Face" (1957)?

The short answer is, “Heaven, I’m in heaven.”

For me directing is like having sex: when it's good, it's very good; but when it's bad, it's still good.Collapse )
